Ondineke is a classic tripel, brewed in the ancient way, again with exclusive natural ingredients: artesian water, malt (barley), hops, yeast and liquid candy sugar. As in the Saison no spices are added. Ondineke is an unfiltered top fermenting beer. It is soft, creamy, and of golden color. It is double hopped with the last real hops available from the region of Aalst (The variety is Hallertau Mittelfrüh). Ondineke has a positive taste evolution and the bottles are best kept standing in a cool, dark place. It is best before two years after the bottling date. 8.5 % alc.vol. makes this a beer to be savoured. Preferably Ondineke is to be served at a temperature between 6 to 10° C. Moreover Ondineke is at its best when served in the originally designed Glazen Toren glass.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2006
A Mes rate: 75cl bottle from Twickenham Beer Fest shared with Nick and Moby. Very large pillowy head that settled quickly. Old and dusty in the nose with some citrus and spice. Rather sweet in the mouth with fairly obvious alcohol and some peppery notes. Spritzy and fairly heavily carbed in the mouth and to be honest it just about gets away with it. Bitter but creamy finish. Along the lines of 3 Monts for me. Nothing out of the ordinary but all that you want is there with knobs on. Good beer,

Ernest (6262) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 Bottle (Mar 2010 bottling). Head is initially huge, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of honey, lemon/orange zest, mint/wintergreen/teaberry, gum. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. This sample is sweeter than my last rating in 2008, and it suffers a bit as a result. Needs more hop brightness (and preferably some cobwebby yeast presence too) in the nose, and better attenuation. Still a great beer, but less "tripely" than I would want.

thedm (4948) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 2, 2006
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that was mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent uncarbonated yellow-white colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was floral sweet and mild malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish. The flavor contained notes of crisp candy malt and hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider having again.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Bottle foamed slightly upon opening yielding a hazy golden pour with a thin, wispy, fizzy white head and some suspended yeast. Aroma has some sweet bready Belgian biscuity malt. Body starts sweet and malty with good toasty biscuity notes and a touch of coriander. Not quite as balanced as it could be, but decent nonetheless.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy medium gold to caramel pour with big, fluffy, white head that got bigger with every repour. Aroma of spicy florals, candi sugary malt, citrus, and some earthy notes. The flavor was dry and spicy, with floral, candi sugar, fruit, and finishing citrus notes. Recommended.
